Balance for Students

Our Commitment

At Morristown-Beard School, we are deeply invested in guiding students to reach their potential within a life of balance and authentic learning.

This academic philosophy often represents a significant change for many students who come to MBS from a more traditional, pressure-filled school environment. These academic institutions usually reward work for work’s sake, teaching students to choose grades over growth and class rankings over collaboration. These hyper-competitive, “grade grinding” school atmospheres produce the antithesis of an ideal learning environment, and negatively affect the social, emotional, and mental well-being of its students.

We’re proud that balance for our students—in learning and in life—is a hallmark of a MBS education, and our commitment to this important promise to your child will always remain an integral part of our mission.

The important journey that each student will take while at Morristown-Beard School will be different. It will be a scholastic experience filled with excitement, challenge, achievement, and growth, for MBS draws the best out of its students by harmonizing academic rigor with moral and ethical development.
